    "Infections of a worm that spreads through low security networks, memory sticks, and PCs without the latest security updates is "skyrocketing"."

    You have a worm.

    Would you like to email it to a friend, or allow it to infect your network? Wait I think I'll do both. *if pc's could talk*\
